Molly Fry

I had two black mollies that gave birth to a molly fry that is now aprox. 6 months old. While both of the parents are black, the offspring is white with black spots. Will this continue through till adult hood? Or is it more like a dalmation molly now...

What reasons are there for the different color?

Genetics would be the reason! The good ol' punett square with dominant and recessive alleles would show you why that happens :)

Eh, my black balloon molly (whom the only male in the tank now is a orange male, tho there was a black and white one before), gave birth to white with black spot fry the last 2 times now. Your female may still be pregnant from the fish store. =o

He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."
